The Worst h Over Mis- It appears safe to say that sissippi county has experienced the worst'that the present high water can do and that residents of the county 'may proceed with plans for the future without serious concern lest the areas now affected by flood waters be extended. The crest of the present Hood on the Mississippi will not approach the top of the levee protecting this county. With water standing 12 feet and more against the levee it would be foolish to assert that there is no danger. But in' view of the ample freeboard, the excellent condition oC the levee, and the precautions that have been taken to protect it, the danger from the big river is so slight that it should not be permitted to disrupt the normal activities of those not directly affected by the water or engaged in flood work. , For the months ahead the welfare of Mississippi county and its people depends' upon the making of normal farm crops. There is every reason to expect that in very little if any part of the county will water conditions prevent farm operations. Plans arc already afoot for plugging breaks in tbe Drainage District 17 levee system as soon as the water subsides sufficiently. The Mississippi river Aood is described by Gen. Edward Markham, chief of army engineers, as of the "Hash" type. Barring future heavy rains in the upper watershed, it should pass quickly. But if water is not likely to prevent normal farm operations, the fact that flood conditions—in a large measure flood fears rather than actual Hood- have reduced the population of this county by from 12,000 to 15,000 in the past two, weeks, may prove a serious obstacle* Relief authorities have shipped about 7,500 persons out of the county. Other thousands have t'one of their own volition. Still within the county but away from their homes in relief camps are perhaps another 2,500. The welfare of the county and of these people demands that most of them return to their homes and normal living ils quickly ils com |iti ons permit; it is to be hoped that the relief authorities'will shape their program to that end. A good many of them, driven out by fright or by accumulated surface water rather than OUT OUR WAY by water from levee' 'breaks, could be living in their 'homes now, U they are to support themselves Jduving the year aheml they nwst return before long. A Fickle Jade, Fame of Fame serves up more evidence her fickleness, Just a few days «go one-time film star Marie Provost died in obscurity after trying futilcly to make a comeback, And just Die other day a plump but crippled woman mounted a court witness stand in New York, and said, "1 am Gertrude Ederle." It was a naVne emblazoned in neXvspaper headlines, the world over juat 11 ycara ago, 'following her Amazonian feat of swimming the English Channel. Two years after her exploit, fame began to desert Miss Edcrle. She became an obscure swimming instructor. Then fate struck its crudest blow. Iii court, during her suit for damages, •she told bo'w she had spent the last several years in torment, because of a fall in an apartment house. From such stories as these, people who have never achieved fame may draw a grain of consolation. Apparently, to paraphrase a sporting idiom, "The higher you go, the harder you fall." /.-;.

SensibU Mow Senator Kenneth McKcljar,. of Tennessee, has introduced . a resolution which would bar federal district and circuit courts from enjoining operations of any federal statute until and unless the U. S. Supremo Court, has declared the statute unconstitutional. There is a .groat deal of good sense in this proposal. It would at least get us away .from an absurdity of which we have seen a good deal in the last few years—that of an act beini; upheld by a judge in one district and declared inoperative by a judge in an adjacent district. Furthermore, none of these lower- court rulings on constitutionality arc final. If '«, statute is to be tested in, the courts, it is.,the supreme court- which bus the last word. Permitting the lower courts to issue their ukases before the higher court has acted simply creates confusion.

MOUBIS I'lSIIHKlN Editor, Journal of ihc American Medical Association, and of Ilyscia, the Health Magazine The diphtheria carrier' Is un- lucsllijiiably one of tW most im- anl factors in spread of that iscase. Some time after they have he disease, but frequently without "ver manifesting symptoms, diph- heria carriers get the germs ii he. throat and thereafter distrib ulc them. Whenever the number-ol cliph- Jicrla cuscs, morei^es suddenly public health .officials*'-arc .• likely lo suspect Ihc piescijco of diph thcrln carriers. After a child has had .diphtheria, he should not, be, illo\\cd to piny with other children until he has been pronounced i free from the germs. Diphtheria germs can bf carried for as long as 10 months in the throats of children ivho have recovered from Ihc disease. • In more than 10 per cent of rill ascs ; of diphtheria, 'germs can e. found hi the throat two weeks ftcr all signs of the disease seem ' have disappeared. ..'•'• . . In 1 per cent of cases, germs :ill arc fovmd four weeks after le children are apparently well. Before he discharges patients rom observation, the doctor houlcl examine the throat and nke specimens of the .material herein, to determine whether enns siill are present. If the germs are persistent, it is :cctsary to treat the condition rith active antiseptics or by other nethcds, lo clear up the carrier •onditlon. Infected tonsils are larticularly likely to harbor diph- hcria germs. In fiich cases removal of the tonsils usually will misli the germs. In other cases the throat is swabbed daily with a mild tincture of iodine, and nose ami .hroat cleaned with hydrogen peroxide. Perelslcnl treatment in most coses will clear up the carrier condition, usually within several weeks.

We sat there Antitoxin, while especially valuable for diphtheria, is nut especially useful in clearing up the carrier condition. In that condition, remember, the child carries germs his throat without being disturbed by such loxiu or poison as the germ manufacturers, because he already has developed In his bleed the antitoxin to take care of these iwisons. Remember, too, that diphtheria germs are located on ihc surface of the tissue and arc not, in immediate contact with She blood.
